Desert dwellers : painting on a utility box

Desert dwellers : painting on a utility box

It's finally real, after nearly a year my desert dwellers design is now on the utility box near the Hollywood Palladium! Turns out there's quite a bit that needed to happen behind the scenes to get the city's approval and push it through the different departments. But that's ok. With all the rain we've had this year it's not sure I would have gotten around to it earlier anyway!     With four sides totaling around 60 square feet this project was a bit of a leap for me cause I've never painted anything that big before. So my goal when...

The logic of illusions and illusion of logic

The logic of illusions and illusion of logic

Art is hard to write about, and maybe that's why most artists refrain from it. It is what it is, they say, just look at the picture and make up your own mind as to what it means. Or they say don't even try to figure it out, just take it in and enjoy. It's not meant to be understood. But that kind of bothers me.

Co-existing with the "other": hummingbirds, doves and twins

Co-existing with the "other": hummingbirds, doves and twins

Some people have dogs, others have cats, I have hummingbirds. Two of them mostly. I give them nectar, they roam free- and I'm happy with that. Sometimes they'll sit on a wire at a certain distance from each other, totally aloof, then one will plunge and less than a second later the other one will charge behind […]

Cactuses and desert dwellers

Cactuses and desert dwellers

It seems every city in the US have started to use their gray utility boxes as canvases for public art. Since being asked to paint one I've been noticing them at almost every street corner! Some corners are more inspiring than others but I've been lucky- mine is right by the Hollywood Palladium.

What you see here is a pretty gouache version of my design on paper (and cleaned up digitally) - the real thing will be painted with house paint on metal [...]
